Trivia

One of the jokes in this episode is that Bart and Homer watch a movie starring McBain (the Arnold Schwarzenegger parody in the series) where he busts out of an ice sculpture and utters the line "Ice to see you." In an intriguing case of "Life imitating Art" (or the series in this case), in 1997, Schwarzenegger would go on to star in Batman & Robin (1997) where he played the villain Mr. Freeze, who made a lot of ice-themed puns through the film, much like McBain did here.

Goofs

The nitrous oxide cylinder at the end of the episode is marked N²O. Chemical formulas use subscript for numbers, at least nowadays (the original Berzeluis notation used superscript and was still used during the first half of the 20th century). See more »

Quotes

Homer: [thinks] Oh, man. I have to go to the bathroom. Why did I have all that beer and coffee and watermelon?
Mr. Burns: Now Homer, I know what you're thinking, and I want to take the pressure off. It doesn't take a whiz to see that you're looking out for Number One.
[as he speaks, there is a leaky pipe dripping in the background, and Smithers pours him coffee from a pot with a long spout]
Mr. Burns: Well, listen to me, and you'll make a big splash very soon!

Best by light years of Simpsons at its peak
30 June 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Early Simpsons set a cracking pace, but this one is a freak of nature compared to even the other great episodes...

If you haven't seen it, best to stop reading now and just start watching it.

Not a dud in it or even average work in it... you could watch normal programs for thousands of hours without being treated so well by the TV industry.

I thought 21 years ago the team had for some reason just decided they'd aim for ultimate comedy highs with every 10 seconds of the 22 minutes and I still think that is true!

Ultimate Mr Burns ep. Most laughs per ep.

No Comic Book Guy, but Best Ep(isode) EVER!
